The fine feeling for colours and forms
Creative Director

How would you describe your signature style?
I love the combination of purist, straightforward designs and special colours. Besides being aesthetic, products should be functional and of high quality. Rather than being overly complicated, they should be self-explanatory and easy to use. From flowing caftan to coat rack, my designs are always rooted in intuition. You work in a wide range of areas, from corporate design and furniture to fashion and catalogues.

How do you find working on such diverse projects?
I see myself as a designer, so rather than distinguishing between the different domains, I see them as a greater whole into which I channel my creativity. I work in a wide range of fields. My eyes and ears are constantly on the lookout for inspiration, no matter whether it’s a CI for a small company I’m working on or a project for an agency.

Is there a dream project you’d like to do?
Yes. I’d like to develop the perfect hideaway. It would have to be luxurious, not in a loud, brash way but on an emotional level. It would be a place where guests immediately feel comfortable. I do quite a lot of travelling myself, so I think I know what would be needed. I would design a hotel that brings together all the things I have experienced so far in my career.
The designers Christian Haas and Sebastian Herkner work in very different ways. They have one thing in common. They love traditional craftsmanship and use it time and again in the development and production of their designs.For Schönbuch, both designers have worked with ceramics as a material, and in doing so, they put clear and minimalist forms into their designs for Schönbuch - manufactured in traditional handicraft in Portugal.


My home
in Porto

„We moved for a few days, with a selection of Schönbuch furniture and accessories, to a beautiful townhouse in the heart of Porto. The house was built in the 1930s and has a magnificent green tiled facade with a tropical garden in the backyard.
